BM8

icarquitectura as Architects

It is an isolated building with a ground floor and four floors, located on the north side of a plot of narrow and elongated proportion, in order to free up the south side to locate the pool and the rest of the common spaces.

The building is divided into two volumes so as not to exceed the linear meters of façade allowed, and each one of them contains two staircases and four apartments per floor. A total of 40, half of them facing three façades. The wide spaces and the interior exterior connection are prioritized, with large balcony windows that overlook three-meter-deep terraces along the entire length of the south façade. The north façade, on the other hand, contains all the rooms that are illuminated through large windows. Two very different faces marked by the orientation and the interior functional program.

Access to the staircases runs through a flown walkway that connects the pedestrian door of the street with each of the access of the development. On the north side, in order to free up the maximum recreational space on the south side. Two basement floors complete the development, joining the two housing volumes. At street level they are completely buried, but as the plot progresses, they become uncovered given the difference in elevation from one point to the other of approximately six meters.
